Description

Join us as the 3A Institute celebrates its first anniversary.

As a companion piece to her launch talk one year ago, Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell will present a public lecture highlighting what has changed over the last 12 months and charting the 3A Institute progress towards its goals. She will announce an exciting new initiative and the 3A Institute’s new ambitious program for impact.

The lecture will be followed by networking drinks in the Jaeger Room

The 3A Institute

IoT turbo-charged by AI, advanced robotics, automated vehicles incorporating sensing data with other datasets, powerful big data analytics like machine learning driving automated decision-making.

However you choose to paint the picture, the collection of technologies we are currently calling artificial intelligence (AI) is heralding the next industrial revolution. Some of these tools are new, some have been refined over preceding decades. However, we are now seeing their rapid convergence into systems – cyber-physical systems – that will have an unprecedented impact on humanity through deep economic, social and cultural shifts.

To face these challenges head-on, the ANU created the Innovation Institutes framework. 12 months ago, Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell founded the 3A Institute – the first of the Innovation Institutes – with the mission of creating a new applied science in an accelerated timeframe.

Through the vehicle of the 3A Institute, the ANU will ultimately educate a new cohort of people who can critically examine and manage technological constellations – these cyber-physical systems – through the life-cycle from design to deployment to de-commissioning.


Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell

Professor Bell is the Director of the 3A Institute, Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, and a Distinguished Professor at the ANU as well as a Vice President and Senior Fellow at Intel Corporation. Prof Bell is a cultural anthropologist, technologist and futurist best known for her work at the intersection of cultural practice and technology development.
